$ 223.00 usd in shipping at least, and they let you know it could be more.... so I would not rush to break out the credit card just yet!

No need to get defensive here. Its good to see another Heng Long dealer & am certain if anyone wants to buy case lots neither Mato nor RCCommand would have any problem matching the price.

LOL - $650 to ship ONE case to Australia!

Let's see - $220 US + $650 US = $870 US to get 4 tanks over here!

$870 US = $1309.65 AUD for 4 tanks.

$327.41/tank.


Um..probably not.

Howdy HL kit bashers, wouldn't you know it, these Importers are reasonably close by to this Tamiya modeler's home and I could do will call all day long and avoid any shipping charges. To bad they don't list the Stug, but then again, I wouldn't spend another dime on these mickey mouse low end toys and the alternative home grown electronics that you cheap skates have developed. Check a real model Pershing: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xJvLY8H36uI

If Brady Bunch music with pictures of unweathered plane Jane model tanks is your thing, I guess you got it. I have plenty of fun with my sub $200.00 tanks. I really see no need to come in an insult people in this nature anyway.

Mr pcomm1 I have found that a small peice of advice my dear old Gran gave me many years ago could also serve you well it goes like this.

" If you can't find somthing positive to say about someone or something you don't like. Keep your trap shut "

Hope you can make use of this in your life at some point. As for me I will take my Gran's advice and say nothing further about or to you.

LOL... actually I think the music is from the movie Kelly's Heroes... but it could be the Brady Bunch singing it... When the heck is the HL Jagdpanther gonna show up... I can't make up my mind whether to get gray or camo...?? Guess I'll have to get both...sigh. But I agree with you Tex, if you can't say something nice just shut your pie hole.

It's funny how someone with an overpriced 'Tamiya' collection always seems to be the one to come in and stir some ****, just because there is a company doing it cheaper!


Living in Oz it is a little harder when it comes to getting any RC tank - we don't have a lot to choose from down here and our import laws sucka-da-ballz (puts violin away).
Maybe the shipping gets cheaper when you buy in bulk. You would hope so!

I like the fact that i don't need to ***** myself on the streets to purchase a " Mickey Mouse" tank.
Given pcomm1's statement - i can't see how else he could afford Tamiya.
